Fix

Have you tried a more modern FTP client?

Filezilla provides a free GUI solution for Linux (or Windows).

Hi Jeff,

I'm sorry to see you're having problems FTP'ing to your website.

I've checked your account and I can't see any obvious issues our side, which may be affecting this. I'd second the advice you've been given about trying a different FTP client just to rule out any issues with the client you're using.

Let us know how it goes.
